Sandwich Enterprise interviews Clifford about Everest experience

The Sandwich Enterprise talked with University of Maine doctoral student Heather Clifford about her experience on the National Geographic and Rolex Perpetual Planet Everest Expedition. “The expedition overall was quite an incredible experience; having little travel experience I had quite a few firsts,” said the 2011 graduate of Sandwich High School. “First time being in Asia, riding in a helicopter, trekking for 11 days straight, spending a month at 17,500 feet, living in a tent for a month, [and] seeing an avalanche.”
